The school confirmed through an e-mail statement that Blake Leach will not return as head coach for the 2013 season.
"It has been brought to my attention that CCHS will be taking a new direction for this year's baseball team and Mr. Blake Leech will continue to serve in his capacity as a teacher at CCHS. As we near baseball season, I will work with CCHS Athletic Director Steve Lovelace and Principal Michael Stevenson to keep you informed of who will be selected to coach the CCHS baseball team," Christian County Public Schools Communications Director Heather Aubin said in an e-mail statement.
Leach was 80-66 in four seasons as Colonel head coach, including a district title in his first season as head coach in 2009. The past three seasons, Christian County has lost to Hopkinsville in the district title game and not advanced past the first round of the region tournament.
Christian County was 19-20 last year and lost to Henderson County in the first round of the region tournament.
The statement from the school did not say who would be serving as interim coach until a new baseball coach is officially named.
Christian County is scheduled to open their season March 8th against Webster County.
